NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The looming government shutdown possibilities are beginning to weigh on equity markets as TheStreet's Brittany Umar, David Peltier and Andrew Krill break down the week ahead.
Friday will likely be the biggest day of the week, because of the nonfarm payrolls report for the month of September, scheduled to be released at 8:30 a.m. EDT.Krill said that economists will be looking for 180,000 jobs and a 7.3% unemployment rate. Umar added that if results come in higher than expectations, it will once again raise questions over when the Federal Reserve will begin tapering. Peltier concluded that he's raised a lot of cash recently, in order to buy stocks on a potential dip from the current budget issues in Washington. Video.
